Apologies for one more non-stationery recap, but hopefully I’ll make up for it with gorgeous pictures. I got back about 1am last night (this morning?) from a 12-day trip to Norway. It was in a single word: amazing.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a more beautiful country. Every day we were surrounded by forests, waterfalls, fjords, lakes, sheep and too many beautiful sights to document. There was a lot of running and walking, enjoying being outdoors, sampling new cuisine (surprise: not as much fish as I thought there would be), and meeting new people. There was also a little drinking, some journaling, and lots of making memories that will last a lifetime. You can find my full Flickr album here, but I’ve added a few of the highlights below:
Waterfalls everywhere (this one in Lillehammer)
Maihaugen “open air” museum Lillehammer – featuring traditional Norwegian houses dating back to the 1400s and 1500s
Ronadane Nasjonal Park
Lots of sheep!
Geiranger Fjord and waterfall
Salty licorice anyone?
Running the Atlantic Ocean Road – an archipelago at the western-most point of Norway. Also featured in the most recent Bond movie!
Traditional Norwegian cuisine (and coffee) on top of a mountain!
The final run – not pictured rocky paths, SO MUCH MUD, boggy marshes.
Galdhoppigen – the tallest peak in Norway (and glacier sighting!)
More new toys and reviews next week!
